Beachside Yoga Retreat

with Laura Thorne in Playa Maderas , Nicaragua

From $1195 Per person

5 nights in Playa Maderas, Nicaragua
Sat Nov 07 - Thu Nov 12, 2015


A secluded jungle eco-lodge overlooking the surf at Playa Maderas, 8km north of San Juan Del Sur in Nicaragua. Guests at Buena Vista Surf  Club switch off their smartphones, unwind and give in to the simple life, surrounded by lush forest and the Pacific ocean.

This is a place for people who want something different – to stay in a private cabaña amongst the trees, share family-style meals with like-minded people, watch the sunset and the stars from our deck in the treetops, and stroll five minutes to pristine beaches.

Buena Vista Surf Club isn’t just for surfers. Although we are a short walk from Playa Maderas, one of Nicaragua’s most consistent surf spots,
the eco-lodge welcomes anyone seeking a bit of chilled-out luxury in the sun.

It’s a cosy setup with only six cabañas, all built to complement the natural environment around us. We all eat together in delicious family-style meals of home-cooked local food. Every day we offer yoga on the sundeck and surfboard hire or surfing lessons. And there are lots of other activities in the area if you want a bit of fun, including turtle-spotting, sailing, fishing, horseback riding, ziplining, as well as the bars, cafés and shops of the nearby San Juan del Sur.

Can't say enough great things about this trip. The setting was beautiful, the people were wonderful and the experience exceeded my expectations by far. Be aware that this is an eco-lodge, not a 5 star resort, so expect insects and other creatures in your cabanas. I brought my own yoga mat and beach towel, but the resort provided both so that wasn't necessary - bringing soap and shampoo, however, is.

While you can always book a private room with your guest, if you select a shared room, you'll be able to request a roommate after you place your booking.


Booking a shared room is cheaper and way more fun than booking your own private room. We’ll be sure to match you with someone awesome.
